Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Urbin Strege, Army - Served in World War II
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Debra Strege)

My father served in World War II. He lives with me now and will turn 93 eights days after this upcoming election. I honor my dad not just because he helped fight against fascism along with others of this greatest generation, but because he taught me to be honest, work hard, remain a vigilant citizen, and to always vote. By action and words, he taught me the lessons learned from the first great Republican Depression of the 1930s and the about our great Democratic hero, Franklin Roosevelt, who saved Democracy for the world. All my life he has had great political foresight. He identified Barack Obama as our next great hope and supported his run for the Presidency long ago. For this and many more reasons, I vote in his honor.
